Blind Sensorium Workshop is an action devised on the occasion of Armin Linke’s Blind Sensorium. Il paradosso dell’antropocene exhibition in Matera. The workshop engages primary, middle and high school students in a dialogue with Armin Linke's research, taking the documents on show as the starting point for initiating an open reflection around issues such as climate change, information politics and the role played by images.
A guided tour moves the group across the exhibition's spaces, to identify the essential themes and connections between the images. Step by step, the participants respond to both texts and images by writing down and drawing personal notes on the loose pages of a customized sketchbook.
Eventually, the workshop provides the participants with copies of the images on show, as well as a selection of excerpts, inviting them to design an original 'exhibition-guide' by combining their drawings and texts with selected exhibition materials.
The series of booklets is available for consultation until the closing of the exhibition.
